Are You Buying the Fear-mongering?

APPEARANCE ANNOUNCEMENT: Libertarian Convention, Columbus, OH


Downsize DC President, Jim Babka, and Chairman, Gary Nolan will be broadcasting from the Libertarian National Convention on Thursday and Friday, June 26 and 27, at the Hyatt Regency Columbus. More details coming soon. If you're going to be there, and you're interested in meeting in person, please send an email to with your contact info.  




I told Congress to stop fear-mongering about terrorism.


Please do the same.


You may copy or edit this letter…


We the people didn't know how systematically abusive domestic surveillance was. Then, Edward Snowden told us. Now we have come to fear the federal government more than we fear “the terrorists.” Thanks to NSA abuses YOU enabled…


* We're more careful about websites we visit, our online conversations, and other online activities

* We've even reduced our online shopping!


Which means…


* our freedom of expression and association has been chilled

* our right to privacy has been crushed

* our economy has been harmed


60% of Americans no longer believe in your phantom terrorist threat. We value our privacy over your Bill of Rights-crushing “protection.”


I'm glad people are waking up. I expect you'll do little to solve the underlying problems. And that means…


The numbers will only grow.


Unless you start to realize…


The War on Terror is no longer politically profitable for you. End it, and all legislation that enables it.


Failure to FINALLY do the right thing might ultimately cost you your credibility and your job.




You can send your letter using’s Educate the Powerful System.


Then, please consider making a monthly pledge. Monthly pledgers help Downsize DC to plan ahead. And pledges can be any size! We have pledgers who give $1, while others give $250 each month. The average is about $14.


One time contributions are very helpful as well. And they're much need during the summer months.


Please use our secure online form.
